Austrian Science and Research Liaison office Ljubljana www.aso.zsi.at has identified project management capacity building as a key precondition for Western Balkan countries to harness the great potentials offered by European Research Area and the process of European integration and for WBC researchers to fulfill the role of a reliable, successful and sought for partner in EU projects.
Therefore ASO Ljubljana is joining efforts with European Association of Research Managers and Administrators www.earma.org on research management capacity building in WBCs by facilitating the participation of research managers and administrators (approx. 10 people) from Western Balkan countries in this year's annual EARMA conference which will be held June 20-23 in Ljubljana www.earma-ljubljana2010.org/ .
EARMA 2010 Conference programme will consist of plenary and keynote lectures, as well as a wide variety of parallel workshops and sessions dealing with many practical aspects of research management and administration.
The programme is divided into three subject 'tracks', and aims to cover the following:
- FP7 management and Finance: 7 financial rules, full costing, certification, timesheets, and audits
- Research Office Services - models of research office support structures, project management, and adding value to proposals
- Research Strategy & Policy - funding strategies, industry-university collaborations, and building research capacity
